In this episode, Heller talks with Greenberg Traurig Shareholders Nicole Goodwin and Kristen Ng along with Associate John A. Shumate about being in the right place at the right time to help a family who had fled from war-torn South Sudan. When Malith Machiek Chan fled from Sudan and came to the United States, he had to leave behind his 13-year-old orphan brother, Makulang. When Malith crossed paths with Goodwin and she heard his story, she rose to action to help reunite Makulang with his older brother in the United States. Malith joins the podcast and details the amazing journey that shows us how pro bono opportunities and opportunities to do good are everywhere.
Good in Practice is formatted to tell the powerful stories of the good pro bono work can achieve, highlighting the work of Greenberg Traurig attorneys, staff, and clients. The goal is to encourage all practitioners to assist underserved and vulnerable communities by providing much-needed legal counsel on a volunteer basis.
